XV Pawowek, aka Bartek Kalinka, has already a couple of releases out, which so far were a crude combination of musique concrete and noise. On 'Chewing Is Pointless' however he goes into new territory: that of soundscaping. Many sounds from the city where he lives are played here: inside of a bus, inside of a car, street, cafeteria and station. He plays this back by cutting silence seemingely at random in his music. Maybe Parowek is now all Cage inspired? There wasn't really a counterpoint, a distinct break or anything such like in the material, which makes it not an easy release to digest.
